VFW National Commander Meets with President Obama
VFW National Commander John Stroud met with President Obama in the Oval Office on March 3 to discuss the VFW’s top legislative priorities, which are to end sequestration; to ensure the Department of Veterans Affairs continues to provide quality and timely care and benefits to veterans and their survivors; to successfully implement the Veterans Choice Program so that the VA can identify and correct what’s broken, hold employees accountable, and restore the faith of veterans in their VA; and to fully support the newly formed Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency and its mission to recover and identify missing Americans from their wars.

VFW National Legislative Service
The location of our Washington, D.C. office allows us to monitor all legislation affecting veterans, alert VFW membership to key legislation under consideration and to actively lobby Congress and the administration on veterans’ issues.
Everything we do on Capitol Hill is with the VFW’s priority goals and veterans’ well-being in mind. With the strength of the nearly 1.9 million members of the VFW and its Auxiliaries, our voice on “the Hill” cannot be ignored!
